Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby won the Ted Lindsay Award as the NHLs Most Outstanding Player, the league announced Saturday night. Tampa Bay Lightning winger Martin St. Louis, winner of the Art Ross and Lady Byng Memorial trophies, was a finalist for the honor, as was Washington Capitals winger Alex Ovechkin. Voting results were not made available. This was Crosbys second Ted Lindsay Award, which is voted on by members of the NHLPA. He also claimed the honor in the 2006-07 season. Ovechkin (three times, in the 2007-08, 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons) and St. Louis (once, in 2003-04) are also former winners. In 48 regular-season games, St. Louis led the league in points (60), assists (43) and was second in points per game (1.25).

Penguins Okay with Second Best

After reading Phil Krundle’s passionate, well-thought, and superbly crafted feature on the state of the Penguins (and coach Dan Bylsma), I almost didn’t post this piece. It’s not nearly as comprehensive as Phil’s, but it represents a different point of view. In that spirit I decided to post it: I never thought I’d see the day when the Penguins organization embraced being...

Ryan Wilson: How important is keeping Pascal Dupuis?

One of the more important decisions that Ray Shero will have to make this offseason will certainly be the Pascal Dupuis contract extension. Dupuis has been nothing short of terrific in his time with the Penguins. A strong argument could be made that Dupuis’ cap hit of 1.5M per season was one of the best cap values in the entire league. Most of the league knows Dupuis as...
